BCT refresher courses

Prenatal Refresher Courses

RECAP WITH A REFRESHER COURSE.

Refresher courses are for parents who have already had a baby. They offer you a chance to spend a little time focussing on this subsequent pregnancy and birth, reflecting and building on past birth experiences, preparing for welcoming the new baby into your family, meeting others in a similar situation and making friendships.

These courses are shorter (1 to 2 sessions) than our Birth & Parenting courses for first time parents. They are much more individualised and they can take place as 1-2-1 sessions or in small groups either in-person or online. The courses also give expectant parents access to all our postnatal services, support and social activities as they are to be booked with a first-year membership.

Whilst the detailed agenda of the course is set by the group (couple) itself, key topics at a refresher course could include:

  • Debriefing previous birth and parenting experiences
  • Recapping on the process of labour and coping with pain
  • Recapping on possible medical interventions
  • Vaginal birth after caesarean
  • The different roles of health professionals in Belgium
  • Preparing young children for the arrival of a sibling

"I found the course absolutely invaluable. There was great advice on preparation for our new arrival and it gave us an idea of what to expect. Also we had a wonderful group and us Mums meet up every week." M.
